    Installing TrueCrypt on Gutsy Gibbon (7.10)

    WARNING: It appears that these directions don't work for the Kubuntu. It isn't clear why, but the kernel module doesn't seem to load properly. This may require the compilation of a custom kernel. If you figure it out, please post below how you did it.

    I found the information on the forums a bit scattered and/or outdated so I was encouraged to write up a quick post to inform others who might be searching for the same information I was how to do so quickly.

    If you would like to get TrueCrypt install on Gutsy, the good folks over at the TrueCrypt website have made it pretty easy. If it was in the repositories it would be even easier, but this is about as close as it gets. No totally anonymous packages or fresh compiles against kernel source...

    Simply visit http://www.truecrypt.org/downloads.php and select the appropriate 7.10 package from the dropdown box and run it. It will open in a package manager you may or may not be familiar with. In this it is as simple as clicking Install and following the directions. You'll probably have to put you password in, then it may need to install some dependencies, but the beauty of apt is that it will handle that for you.

    That's it.

    This is not working for me. Truecrypt is installing but trying to mount the encrypted volume in kubuntu gutsy is throwing this error:

    insmod: error inserting '/usr/share/truecrypt/kernel/truecrypt-2.6.22.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module
    FATAL: Error inserting truecrypt (/lib/modules/2.6.22-14-386/extra/truecrypt.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    Failed to load TrueCrypt kernel module

    Does Kubuntu use the same kernel as Ubuntu? Looks like trouble loading the kernel module.

    The only thing I can think of to try is compiling your own kernel. Does Kubuntu have a different kernel than Ubuntu?

    Re: Installing TrueCrypt on Gutsy Gibbon (7.10)

    I don't think so...

    Hmmm... I will register on the TC forum later to see if there is a solution there.

    Thanks

    Does this only run in the command line version or is there a GUI as in the (forgive me) Windows version?
